Hong Kong, Hong Kong, May 1st, 2024, Chainwire

Over the past year or so, the world of Bitcoin gaming has evolved rapidly, with the recent launch of the Runes protocol promising to revolutionize the way fungible tokens are issued and used on the Bitcoin blockchain. That said, before diving into the details of $GAMES and its recent listing on, it's important to understand the significance of Runes tokens.

Proposed by Bitcoin developer Casey Rodarmor in September 2023, the Runes protocol is a new token standard designed to provide a more efficient and UTXO-friendly way of creating fungible assets on the Bitcoin network. Unlike the BRC-20 token standard, which can lead to excessive UTXOs (unspent transaction outputs) and network congestion, the Runes protocol integrates seamlessly with Bitcoin's UTXO model, minimizing the creation of unnecessary data.
